About Tom


Bio

Hi, I'm Tom! I have a Bachelors degree in history with a minor in mathematics. I've spent most of my work life in video production, from production assistant to producer. Most of my time has been spent as a camera operator, director, and editor. I've been lucky to have worked on some award-winning videos, and to have worked with high-profile clients. I've trained colleagues and clients in lighting, directing, and editing, and I am offering tutoring services in all of these areas. Whether you...

Hi, I'm Tom! I have a Bachelors degree in history with a minor in mathematics. I've spent most of my work life in video production, from production assistant to producer. Most of my time has been spent as a camera operator, director, and editor. I've been lucky to have worked on some award-winning videos, and to have worked with high-profile clients. I've trained colleagues and clients in lighting, directing, and editing, and I am offering tutoring services in all of these areas. Whether you need specific help or a general overview and principles, I am ready to share my experience. I can also offer great perspective on how to get started in the industry.

I am also tutoring in elementary vocabulary, spelling, and math. I was always a top student, especially in these areas. I'd love to share my fascination with math and language. What I lack in experience, I make up for in patience, creativity, and persistence. My goal is to instill confidence and clarity. I can customize a tutoring plan to help with any specific area your child needs.

I welcome suggestions and resources from parents and students. You can always contact me with questions, and I will respond promptly. I offer a free consultation to see if I am a good fit for you. I also don't feel bad if you choose someone else. We have many great tutors here! I look forward to working with you.

I've had a good grasp of math concepts all through my academic career, culminating in a math minor in college. I've maintained an interest in teaching methods since then and helped my two kids through their elementary and high school math classes. I am patient, good-humored, and persistent and will use a variety of techniques to help your child develop confidence in math.

I have a love of books that started very early for me. I've read pretty broadly in a wide range of subjects, and I have a long-running interest in linguistics and word origins. I have studied German and Latin in school, and Spanish and French on my own. I have an appreciation for and understandi

Video Production

Hi, I'm Tom, the owner of Klituscope Films, and I have hands-on experience in all aspects of video production: camerawork, audio, graphic design, lighting, directing, and editing. I worked as an apprentice and as an expert in each of these areas before putting them all together as the owner of Klituscope. I also train other video professionals in these areas. Some of my highlights include directing a CINE Golden Eagle award-winning video (including Spanish and Mandarin Chinese dialogue!) and directing a 23-hour oral history with retired Supreme Court Justice Harold Blackmun. A promotional video I produced for the Easthampton (MA) public library won a PR Award from the Massachusetts Library Association. I am a big fan of Canon cameras and lenses, currently shooting with a Canon XF300A high definition video camera and an OSMO Pocket 4K gimbal camera. For editing, I have been a longtime Final Cut Pro user, though I also have experience with Adobe Premiere and Avid systems.
